How do I turn on my webcam

So I know how to access the youcam and get it all loaded but I have the 

Pavilion TouchSmart 15-b129wm touchscreen one and it shows I have a webcam but it's saying "Warning No Webcam detected. Try plugging in a webcam into your computer now. If you are using an intergrated camera, make sure it's turned on." I've never had to turn on a webcam before and this is the second laptop I've owned. So does any one know where to go to turn it on? I've looked everywhere and I've even tried to reinstall youcam a bunch of times too.

I see that you are having a problem with your webcam and I will be happy to help you. Here is an HP document Webcam Troubleshooting with some troubleshooting steps to follow. Give that a try and let me know how it goes. Are you using Windows 8 or Windows 8.1?
